Crafting effective sales questions means creating a dialogue that uncovers in-depth insights into a lead’s needs and intentions. To do this, questions should be:


  1. Specific to gather detailed information.
  2. Open-ended to encourage elaborate answers.
  3. Centered on ‘why’ and ‘how’ to uncover motivations.
  4. Balanced to maintain a conversational tone.
  5. Prioritized to focus on the most crucial information.
  6. Relevant to the lead’s stage in the customer journey.
  7. Designed to encourage storytelling for richer context.
  8. Adaptive to lead responses for a natural flow.


This approach ensures that you gather the critical information needed to qualify the lead effectively while maintaining an engaging and consultative conversation.
